Bet Live on the Capital One Cup: Manchester City vs. West HamPublished January 8, 2014 by OCR Editor
Manchester City vs. West Ham, 7:45pm UK time.
The Capital One Cup action continues tonight as Etihad Stadium sees home team Manchester City host West Ham for the first leg in the cup's semi-final. Looking at it from all angles, it's easy to assume Manchester City will emerge victorious out of this meeting; they've got everything going for them, from their home advantage, their great Premier League season so far, and the dire situation in which their rivals are in.
West Ham was trashed 5-0 in Sunday's FA Cup match against the Football League Championship team Nottingham Forest. This was another blow for the team which is already having an awful season in the Premier League. Positioned 19 th in the table, relegation is not a distant word for the East London club. Funnily enough, it was the only team keeping West Ham from being in the bottom of the table, Sunderland, which delivered a 2-1 victory over Manchester United yesterday in Old Trafford.
With many injuries including striker Andy Carroll, defenders James Collins and James Tomkins and the suspended captain Kevin Nolan, it's hard to believe we'll see West Ham doing the Sunderland thing to Manchester City. The Citizens are unbeaten in 13 matches and they're behind Arsenal in the Premier League's table by one point only.
